Phil Neville has heaped praise on to England right-back Lucy Bronze after her player-of-the-match display against Norway in the Women’s World Cup quarter-final.The Lionesses won the clash in Le Havre 3-0, with Bronze playing a huge part in all three goals.It was her dribble and cross in the third minute that fell so perfectly for Jill Scott to tap in the game’s opener, while later in the half it was Bronze’s ball to Nikita Parris that found the winger with time and space from which she centred the ball to the waiting Ellen White for a simple tap-in.

But the full-back saved the best for last and in the 57th minute her pile driver from outside the area added England’s third, and final, goal on the night. Bronze is widely acknowledged as one of the top right-backs in the women’s game, but speaking after the match Neville said she has raised the bar even higher this tournament. “I think what you’ve seen tonight, you’ve seen that Lucy Bronze is the best player in the world, without a shadow of a doubt,” he told BBC Sport. “I’ve said it once, I’ll say it three times. There’s no player like her in the world, there’s no player that has her athleticism or her quality and I’m very lucky. I played full-back but never to that level that she plays at – she’s the best player in the world.” The quarter-final success means England will face the winners of France and the USWNT on Friday night, but the Lionesses boss has said he fancies his side’s chances against either team in the last four. “Well, you know what – we want to play them both,” Neville said. “We’re not bothered who we play. We’ll go to Lyon and the atmosphere and the occasion will be great. We’re having fun.” Lyon is, of course, where Bronze plays her club football. With the French side, the England star has won back-to-back Champions League titles and helped Lyon complete the treble in 2018/19. She arrived at Division 1 Feminine outfit in 2017, having previously spent three years at Manchester City. Bronze also has represented Liverpool, Everton and Sunderland.
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson expects Wilfried Zaha to return to the club after failing to seal a transfer away from Selhurst Park. The Ivory Coast international had been constantly linked with a move over the summer window. Everton saw a £70 million ($85m) plus players bid for the forward rejected, while Arsenal were also interested in his services before signing Nicolas Pepe. Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Ultimately, however, no deal could be struck, and Zaha will line up for the Eagles in the upcoming Premier League season. And Hodgson expects his charge to overcome his disappointment and remain committed to his current club.”It’s been well documented that he’s wanted to leave but it has not worked out for him in that respect. We expect him to come back and do what he does,” the former England boss signalled to Sky Sports. Zaha is reportedly upset at Palace’s refusal to accept transfer overtures this summer, having filed a transfer request. But Hodgson pointed out that he would have to vent his frustrations with the club’s owners rather than himself.”His beef is with the owners and the chairman. They haven’t been able to work a deal out for him,” he said. Zaha, 26, moved from his native Ivory Coast to Croydon at the age of four and joined local side Palace at 12. He left south London in 2013 for an abortive spell with Manchester United but rejoined the Eagles less than two years later, making himself a favourite at Selhurst Park. In 2018-19 he hit 10 goals in 34 Premier League appearances to finish as the club’s second-top scorer behind Luka Milivojevic, as a strong finish to the season saw Palace seal a comfortable mid-table position. His club form has also seen him become a regular for Ivory Coast in recent seasons, scoring twice at this summer’s African Cup of Nations to help his nation to the quarter-finals, where they lost out on penalties to eventual champions Algeria.

There cannot be 11 Virat Kohlis in the Indian team: Muttiah MuralitharanMuttiah Muralitharan feels that people need to be patient as one cannot have 11 match-winners in the Indian team and it is also important to try out various combinations going into the World Cup.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiMarch 12, 2019UPDATED: March 12, 2019 12:11 IST Critics have questioned Virat Kohli’s captaincy skills in the absence of MS Dhoni (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli’s captaincy skills have come under the scanner ahead of the ICC World CupKohli gets a lot of help from MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma during the ODIs and T20IsIndia failed to defend 358 in the 4th ODI vs Australia in Dhoni’s absenceWith Australia chasing down India’s total of 358 in the fourth ODI in Mohali and squaring the five-match series 2-2, pundits and fans have been quite critical of the performance of the Indian players.While some have questioned the bowlers’ inability to defend a mammoth total on a decently big ground like the PCA Stadium in Mohali, others have questioned Virat Kohli’s captaincy skills in the absence of MS Dhoni, known to guide the skipper on the field.Speaking to IANS, former Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan begged to differ with the criticism that has come India’s way after Australia won the fourth ODI on Sunday.He feels that people need to be patient as one cannot have 11 match-winners in the team and it is also important to try out various combinations going into the World Cup.”You have to be patient with the team. The Indian team has been doing really well and are trying to experiment with the World Cup around the corner. You will get failures on the road to success as there cannot be 11 Virat Kohlis in the team. Not everyone can be a match-winner,” he said.”You will win some games and you will also lose a few. Otherwise, every team must be filled with 11 Kohli-s or Sachin Tendulkar-s or Don Bradman-s. But that cannot happen,” Muralitharan added.Coming to India’s spin bowling department, the wizard believes that the spin arsenal is well-equipped with Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal at the fore.”I think they are doing a good job. Both are quality performers and the fact that they have done well in all conditions bears testimony to their talent. Also, why do you think someone of the calibre of R Ashwin is not being able to squeeze into the limited-overs team? It is because these two have done well. Just one bad game (in Mohali) can’t be enough to criticise them. We are not dealing with robots here,” he pointed out.advertisementWith the showpiece event round the corner, the former Sri Lanka World Cup-winner feels that the fans too have a role to play if India are to win the trophy in England in a couple of months.”The fans have to be patient. The Indian players have done well and you cannot put too much pressure on them. This is a sport and there will be winners and losers. It is important to keep the pressure off the players as they must be allowed to focus on the game and that will bring the desired results,” he signed off.Also Read | India can’t use dew factor as an excuse for Mohali ODI loss: Madan LalAlso Read | Dhoni half a captain of Indian team, Kohli visibly rough without him: Bishan BediAlso Read | Support pours in for Rishabh Pant after Mohali taunt over missed stumpingsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Reuters Sao PauloJune 11, 2019UPDATED: June 11, 2019 13:14 IST Neymar limped off the pitch during Brazil’s 1st half win over Qatar (Reuters Photo)Brazil expect to win every tournament they play, especially at home, but they go into next week’s Copa America without their talisman Neymar and lacking some of the sparkle that has long been their stock in trade.They have not lost since Belgium dumped them out of the 2018 World Cup in the quarter-finals but their 10-game unbeaten run with the exception of last week’s 7-0 drubbing of 10-man Honduras – has come largely without the usual flair.Brazil’s preparations for the Copa have been overshadowed by Neymar firstly the rape allegations against the striker, which he has denied, and then the ankle injury that ruled him out the tournament last week.Tite’s squad is as good as any in the tournament but the coach is trying to manage a generational change and said that choosing his squad of 23 players was the “most difficult” task he had faced since taking over three years ago.Brazil have included only 14 of the squad that went to the World Cup in Russia a year ago, with Everton’s Richarlison, David Neres of Ajax Amsterdam and midfielders Artur of Barcelona and Luca Paqueta of AC Milan among the young recruits.Apart from home advantage, they are fortunate to be in one of the easier groups with Bolivia, Peru, and Venezuela.The big question will be how they cope without Neymar but his absence could be a blessing in disguise. With the Paris St-Germain forward gone, there will be less of a circus atmosphere around the squad and the focus will be firmly on the pitch.advertisementHis teammates will want to show they can do it without their undisputed leader and they may also take the opportunity to show their solidarity and try to win the trophy for Neymar.The win over Honduras in their last warm-up game, with Philippe Coutinho resurgent and six different players getting their names on the scoresheet, was an encouraging sign.Brazil have won the Copa America eight times but not since 2007 and that trophy drought compounded by a failure to win the World Cup since 2002 – is a long one by Brazilian standards.Fans expect a home triumph and, even though the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation last week said Tite’s job was safe no matter what happens, fans will not spare him unless Brazil win, or lose playing beautiful football.But the coach was his usual inscrutable self when asked what he hoped to achieve over the next three weeks.”We are playing in our own country, and expectations are high that we win,” he said. But the expectation corresponds to how we perform. Are we going to win? I don’t know. But I want us to do the best we can.”Also Read | Neymar wants controversial Santos-Barca transfer trial to be held in BarcelonaAlso Read | Portugal clinch UEFA Nations League title after 1-0 win over NetherlandsAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Ultimately, Mohammed Shami’s hat-trick and Jasprit Bumrah’s double wicket blow helped India record their 4th win of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.Virat Kohli top-scored with 67 as India posted a modest 224 for 8 off their 50 overs. However, Afghanistan gave India a real scare before Bumrah struck twice in the 29th over to peg them back.And then Mohammad Nabi played a heroic knock. With 16 needed off the final over, Nabi hit a boundary before Shami removed Nabi, Aftab Alam and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman off 3 successive balls to win it for India.Speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, Virat Kohli said this was a memorable win.”This is right up there. You win the toss, and you decide to bat and then you see the wicket slow down. You think 260 or 270 would be a good total,” Kohli said. “At the half-way stage, we had our doubts in our minds, but we also had self-belief in the change rooms.”Virat Kohli said he realised the pitch was not the kind where batsmen could play cross-batted shots and felt horizontal shots cost Indian batsmen on the slow surface.”As soon as I went in, I understood the pace of the pitch. Cross-batted shots aren’t on, and a lot of horizontal bat shots cost us on this pitch.”You can’t take the game away from the opposition. You have to knock the ball around, and with three quality wrist-spinners, it was always difficult,” Kohli said.advertisementAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Mohammed Shami 2nd Indian to take World Cup hat-trickAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Mohammed Shami hat-trick seals thrilling win for India over AfghanistanFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Take a Peek at Wimbledon Winner Novak Djokovic’s Swanky Miami Retreat Editors’ Recommendations Book a Last-Minute Summer Camping Trip Just About Anywhere With Pitchup Yellowstone National Park is one of America’s natural treasures. In the past, visitors to the park would have to rough it in old cabins with leaky faucets and faulty fireplaces. That changed this summer when the chic, new Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone were unveiled in July.Delaware North built 50 unique homesteads that combine the amenities of a hotel with the comforts of home. Although not in the park itself, the homes are less than a mile from the entrance in West Yellowstone, Montana. Named after early American explorers and settlers, the cabins feature distressed wood, have vaulted ceilings, carpeted floors, full working kitchens, flatscreen TVs, free Wifi and modern bedrooms with artwork and photographs featuring Yellowstone. Some cabins have push-button fireplaces, making those chilly fall nights just a little cozier. Although the cabins are self-contained and perfect for large groups or families on vacation, you can mingle with fellow guests. A favorite Explorer activity is cooking smores over the fire pit at night. Guests also have access to the gym at the adjacent Yellowstone Park Hotel, and The Branch Restaurant down the street. Some cabins are dog-friendly so Fido doesn’t have to feel left out.The Explorer Cabins are part of a new travel trend called Cabineering. Cabineering stresses the comforts of a hotel and home but in a remote location. Although West Yellowstone isn’t that remote, for many chic city dwellers, it remains a small town and retains a bit of a rural feel. Shops offer kitschy goods or authentic Western wear and most restaurants feature bison, elk and buffalo on menus.The cabins are less than a mile from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park and only a 30-mile drive to Old Faithful. Intrepid modern explorers can hike trails inside the park that are a stone’s throw away from the west entrance. Cabins have binoculars, walking sticks and other paraphernalia for hiking and exploring the park. Just don’t get too close to the bears and always have bear spray on hand. On the Road with Mikah Meyer, the First Person to Visit Every National Park Site in One Trip Escape to the Pacific Northwest at Hoh Rainforest Caravan Cabins Zach Klein Is the Reason We’re All Obsessed with Cabin Porn
Zach Klein Is the Reason We’re All Obsessed with Cabin Porn Editors’ Recommendations Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App Initially, you may wonder how a premier reciprocal travel club for luxury second homeowners could be connected to anything remotely philanthropic, but you’re gonna wanna hear us out. Giles Adams, partner and president of 3RD Home, is a true advocate of charitable acts that exist outside the box. We caught up with him to find out more.Can you tell us about what 3RD Home do for charity?We are involved in two charitable enterprises. Firstly, we are the Global Philanthropy Partner for British Polo Day. British Polo Day is an excellent organization that champions British brands all over the word through putting on world-class polo events. As well as providing luxury British brands with a platform to showcase their wares, they also have a very strong philanthropic element and have raised almost $1,200,000 for charitable causes from the 32 events they have put on.As their Global Philanthropy Partner we donate memberships and access to our homes as auction lots. These tend to be the marquee lots and raise anywhere between $15,000 and $70,000 at each event. Through this, we have been able to contribute a significant proportion of this overall total and we are very proud to be associated with some fantastic causes.We have also partnered up with the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation http://www.jajf.org/ My business partner, Wade Shealy, saw a program about the organization and wanted to help. It was founded by Jon (“Jack”) Albert when his wife Jill was struck with terminal cancer and she worried her kids might forget her. JAJF sends families facing similar challenges on vacations where they can create lasting memories for the children who are facing the imminent loss of their young Mums or Dads. He thought that a company in our business with our great members could help Jack and Jill, so he reached out to them.Essentially, we are contacted by the foundation when they have a new family dealing with terminal cancer in an area where we have some members and houses. Invariably we have a home or two that has some last minute availability which is currently on the 3RD HOME, site or we reach out to our members in the area and ask them whether their beautiful home would be available for this family for a week or a long weekend. Either way, we explain the situation and every time our members have bent over backwards to help. We, as a company, provide the home owning member with the “Keys” (our system credits) and in return the members provide their home with a fully stocked fridge to enable these families to create some fantastic memories in a beautiful setting. The notes of thanks we have received after these trips have been truly humbling.Really?One family who we provided a house for at the Jersey Shore sent us a note after their trip… “for the first time in many years we were able to stop the worries, frustration, and pain and sadness… We were able to relax, laugh, and remember that we are still a regular family, with dreams, and we are all together having fun, something that I think we have forgotten about for a long time.” You can’t help be feel great from hearing something like this.Personally speaking, is this a cause close to your heart? Why?I have been very fortunate to do a good deal of traveling in my life and I know how happy it makes me and how rewarding it has been for my family, so for us to be able to provide a little bit of this to the most deserving of people whose time is finite and incredibly precious feels great.Do you have any plans to build on what you’re already doing in the future?We will continue to support both of these organizations and the fantastic work that they do. We have the scope and opportunity to provide more homes for the Jack and Jill Foundation families and look forward to receiving more calls and requests from them. They are always bitter-sweet calls. On the one hand you have a new family who is going through the toughest of times and on the other it’s great to know that we are in a position to truly help.What’s the best thing about Friday?The hour between 6:30pm and 7:30pm. It has always been a favourite time. The work week is over and the weekend beckons. You never know how it is going to really unfold but the anticipation is exciting. I get to see my very young daughters and read them a story before bed at 7:00 and then it is either out for dinner or R&R. You can’t fault it.

Ettore Bugatti, an Italian-born French designer, had just put the finishing touches on his latest project, the Type 35 prototype. In the six years that followed, the Type 35 would become the company’s most successful race car — reportedly winning more motorsport competitions than any other model from any manufacturer in history.To put a number on it, the Type 35 is estimated to have won over 1,000 races. Among the victories, the Type 35 won the 1926 Grand Prix World Championship, five consecutive Targa Florio victories (1925-1929), and the inaugural Monaco Grand Prix in 1929.Some of the most iconic pre-WWII drivers spent time behind the wheel of the Type 35, including Rene Dreyfus, Louis Chiron (whose name graces the latest Bugatti supercar), and Pierre Veyron (another name we won’t soon forget).Around the time of the second World War, exclusive European cars began trickling into South America. Without a steady supply of spare parts, the region was forced to create infrastructure to reproduce its own.Decades later, a revival began in Argentina. Skills that had been passed down through generations were used to restore these legendary race cars. Pur Sang, which means “pure blood” or “thoroughbred” in French, began specializing in pre-WWII models during the 1980s. To create the most meticulous restorations, Pur Sang made its own tools for production based on original blueprints for the Type 35 engine and other components.The Pur Sang Argentina Type 35B is the result of that labor. Using the same techniques as Ettore himself, the restored Type 35 is a perfect recreation of the original. From the hand-turned finishes on the instrument panel to the English wheel-made carriage, to the original square bolts. Every detail is to spec and every car made to order.There are a few modern touches, however. CNC machining ensures accuracy and repeatability for critical components. Ettore was a mastermind of several forward-thinking engineering practices, including the first-ever aluminum alloy wheels, integrated brake drums in the wheel spokes to dissipate heat, equalized brake bias at all four corners, a hollow front axle to reduce unspring weight, and a two-piece crankcase to make the 2.3-liter straight-eight engine part of the vehicle.Once customers place their order, they can begin customizing their personal Type 35B. Each build takes about 90 days and Pur Sang receives roughly 20 orders per year. To date, Pur Sang has delivered dozens of cars to over 20 countries worldwide. Prominent Pur Sang customers include members of the Bugatti family, members of royal families, and Jay Leno. The Fine Art of Restoring a 1974 Range Rover Classic
Editors’ Recommendations Smart Practices for Drinking With the Environment in Mind Located a quick two-and-a-half-hour drive from New York City, Kingston is a charming Hudson River town that’s been on the come-up these last few years. Divided into three main sections — Uptown Stockade, Midtown and Downtown Waterfront (historically known as Rondout) — locals and NYC ex-pats alike have been flocking to the city for its charming architecture and gorgeous natural surroundings. It’s full of that indie, DIY spirit that we love. Every eatery, shop and bar is more unique than the last. We spent a weekend in Kingston hiking, eating and drinking, as well as staying at some of the loveliest inns in the area. These are the best places we visited, all helmed by some of the most interesting and friendly folks you’ll ever meet.PlayBluestone Wild ForestThis 3,000-acre forest features three scenic hiking trails that wind through hemlock forests, abandoned bluestone quarries and the picturesque Onteora Lake. The trails range from 1 to 2.5 miles and though they are marked along the way, the terrain is still rugged and slightly challenging. If hiking isn’t your thing, activities like paddling, fishing and biking are also available.Tuthilltown Distillery/FacebookTuthilltown DistilleryLocated a quick 35-minute drive from Kingston, Tuthilltown Distillery makes some of our favorite spirits. First, take a tour to see how all of their signature spirits are made. Next, make a stop at the distillery store to sample their entire range, and take home bottles of your favorites (we’re fans of Hudson Whiskey and the cassis liqueur). Finally, sit down for a meal at Tuthill House at the Mill, where you can sample their spirits in cocktails and indulge in dishes like house-made charcuterie and sea scallops with mushroom, artichokes and cauliflower puree. Make an advanced reservation to ensure they can accommodate you.ShopHamilton & AdamsHamilton & Adams recently opened its doors in spring 2017, and it’s now our go-to menswear shop when visiting the Hudson Valley. They have their own private label called the Kingston Collection, which features their tagline, “Stay Curious,” and other illustrations and anecdotes paying homage to the area. You’ll find clothing brands like Grayers and Alternative Apparel, and they carry handy accessories (think dopp kits and weekenders) from the likes of Owen & Fred. We spent an hour perusing the store’s selection of well-curated gifts and copper barware and left with some soaps from Duke Cannon and Hudson Naturals. With a combination of great brands and extremely friendly and attentive service, Hamilton & Adams is one of our new favorite menswear stores of the year.Max Schwartz/The ManualLovefield VintageOwned by husband-and-wife duo Darbie Nowatka and Justin Rice, this well-curated vintage store is stocked things like old-school denim, handsome leather loafers and retro sunglasses. It’s easy to find something you love among their colorful mix, no digging required. They also sell a selection of candles, soaps and other home goods if you’re not in the mood to try on.Ester Wine & SpiritsThis Uptown Kingston wine and liquor store carries a small but mighty selection of organic and biodynamic wines, hard to find vintages, and craft spirits, many of them made locally. Whether you’re shopping for a gift or want to bring home a taste of the region, the knowledgeable staff at Ester Wine & Spirits will help you choose the perfect bottle. We walked out with a small bottle of Doc Herson’s Red Absinthe, a version of the wormwood spirit made with sweet hibiscus and organic grains from upstate New York. Join them for free tastings on Fridays and Saturday to find your new favorite.Cheese LouiseWe stopped into this fine food purveyor after a hike through Bluestone Wild Forest to check out their bounty of domestic and international cheeses, locally-made sausages, and house-infused olive oils. You’ll find everything from freshly baked bread to jams to organic coffee — there’s even a deli section with prepared foods and smoked fish. We left with Brooklyn-made We Rub You Gochujang and their homemade lemon and garlic olive oil that’s good on everything from salads to pastas.Eat and DrinkDuo BistroThis charming American bistro is one of our favorite places to eat in Uptown Kingston. The friendly staff will guide you through their new American menu, which often has a list of mouthwatering specials you should definitely try. When we dined there last, we started with delicately fried squash blossoms that were stuffed with cheese, an expertly-made caesar salad, and small portion of spaghetti carbonara with peas. Then it was on to the main event, a juicy local steak served with sauteed greens and a crispy onion ring. Duo Bistro’s knowledgeable staff will help you choose the perfect wine or cocktail to pair with your meal. Try to make a reservation as this restaurant is always bustling.Diego’s TaqueriaYou can’t visit Kingston without stopping in for a meal at Diego’s Taqueria. If you’re looking for the tacos you’ve eaten on the streets of Mexico, this isn’t the place. But if want to eat insanely delicious spins on the classic flavors, you’ll be in tortilla heaven. The restaurant is helmed by awesome husband-and-wife team Isaac and Elena Cruz; he mans the bar and front of the house while she runs the kitchen and develops all of the recipes. The homemade guacamole is a spiritual experience, as the flavor and texture is perfect in every way. Tacos stuffed with local meats like roasted pork al pastor and coffee and chili rubbed brisket are juicy and satisfying. There are great options for vegetarians too, like the 3 Sisters, made with squash, grilled corn, black beans, cilantro and crema. Isaac is a tequila enthusiast, so ask about his favorite bottle of the moment while you feast.Diego’s Taqueria/FacebookAnchorWhen we first arrived in Kingston late on a Friday night, most restaurants were handing checks to the last patrons — it’s not a late-night town. After asking around, we were told to visit Anchor for a burger. We walked in to the sounds of a live band playing in the back, ordered a whiskey, and sunk our teeth into a juicy burger made with local, humanely-raised beef. We suggest the Cowgirl, topped with chipotle barbecue sauce, cheddar and an onion ring, with a side of homemade tater tots. If you’re a vegetarian, there are plenty of options for you too, including mac and cheese, a homemade hummus plate, and even a black bean chickpea burger.Brunette Wine BarDesign nerds will bug out at this gorgeous wine bar near the Kingston waterfront, and wine enthusiasts will have trouble choosing from their ever-changing list of vino. You’re going to find funky, natural bottles along with more traditional styles, all described by the owner in the loveliest copy you’ve ever seen — tasting notes come in layman’s terms, and she’ll even tell you which song to pair with a glass. A menu of small plates can easily make a meal, especially if you order their trout roe “nachos” (roe, crème fraîche, kettle chips) or homemade turkey and pork liver pate. We’re currently obsessed with their Instagram, which provides us weekly design inspiration.Max Schwartz/The ManualRedstart CoffeeThis wonderful little coffee house is the place to go for a cup of joe and morning pastries if you’re staying near the Kingston waterfront. The friendly staff and welcoming environment is perfect if you want to sip and savor slowly, but you can also take your breakfast bounty to go. You can order everything from an expertly-made espresso to a piping hot mug of caramel apple cider to go along with eats like pastries baked with spinach and feta, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and hearty soups like turkey butternut squash chili.Stockade TavernStockade Tavern serves up the best drinks in town and is an absolute must if you’re a spirits nerd. Take a seat at the spacious bar and browse the sections of their ever-changing menu, which is divided into categories like Sparkling, Highballs, Aged Cocktails and Staff Picks. They even have it broken down by spirit, so you can go for the Netherlands (genever gin, Angostura Amaro, lime, orgeat) if you’re in the mood for gin or the Ultima (mezcal, Green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, lime) if a Mexican twist on the classic Last Word is more up your alley. They have a number of appetizing small plates if you need to soak up the booze.Rough Draft Bar & BooksOne of the coolest things you’ll see in Kingston is at the intersection of Crown and John Streets in the town’s Uptown neighborhood. Referred to as The Four Corners by locals, this intersection is the oldest in America—the buildings on all four corners were built pre-Revolutionary War. This brand new bar and bookstore is housed in one of these historic buildings, so you’re experiencing a piece of history every time you step inside. Founders Amanda and Anthony Stromoski sell a curated selection of books, along with beer, wine, Counter Culture coffee, DUB savory pies and local pastries. Follow them to learn about nightly events and the books they’re reading right now.Rough Draft Bar & Books/FacebookSleepRondout InnBC and Larry of the Rondout Inn are antique collectors and dealers, so every one of their boutique apartment suites is outfitted with unique details and a homey feel. Design buffs will appreciate pieces like Herman Miller chairs and Chinese cloisonné tables, and practical amenities like airy bathrooms, full kitchens and Netflix subscriptions available on every HD television. Vintage art adorns the walls, and the apartments are stacked with plenty of books, board games and playing cards in case you’re up for a lazy morning or early night. Conveniently located on Broadway near the Kingston waterfront, Rondout is close to enough shops, bars and restaurants to keep you occupied during your stay. If the inn happens to be booked, check out Boutique Inns of Kingston, a collective of accommodations owners in the area who are dedicated to watching their beloved city grow and thrive.The Forsyth B&BThis dreamy bed and breakfast features four unique rooms, each one named after a different explorer. When we arrived, owner Tamara Ehlin greeting us at the front door and showed us to the James room, inspired by 19th century traveler James Holman who inhabited every continent of the world, despite being blind. The gorgeous space is designed with two huge skylights, rustic but polished wooden floors and ceiling beams, and a California King bed. Not only does the room feature an en suite bathroom, the space is designed with a Moroccan tiled alcove cradling a soaking tub for two. After getting settled and freshening up for the evening, wander downstairs where Tamara has set out snacks and will offer to make you an evening cocktail from the parlor’s bar cart. When you arrive back to the Forsyth after an evening out, there will likely be freshly baked cookies awaiting for a midnight snack. Tamara serves a three-course breakfast at the large communal dining room table, so you can mingle with other guests as you fuel up for the day. Expect dishes like shakshuka served with creamy polenta and potato gratin, along with her sumptuous “breakfast desserts” like peach and plum tart. They just finished renovating the on-property Forsyth Barn this fall, which sleeps 16 and seats 50 for special events.A huge thank you to Jeep for lending us this 2017 Jeep Renegade, a compact SUV that made for the perfect adventure vehicle during our excursion to Kingston. The bold dual sunroofs have panels that can be retracted or removed completely, depending how much wind you like blowing through your hair. Heated mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer keeps your vision clear, even in blustery weather conditions. This is one of the most comfortable Jeeps yet, with super plush seating and plenty of storage space — like a height-adjustable rear cargo floor — along for the ride. The Renegade is available with either a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine or a 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir 2 engine, both of which offer outstanding responsive power for a refined driving experience. Jeep loyalists and brand newbies alike will love the Renegade, designed for the adventure-seeker in all of us.
